We don't have kids but have to put up with the noise of next door's 2 and 6 year olds.
It is quite clear from screaming exchanges that the kids are locked in their bedrooms so mummy can have me time.
This morning, about 09:30, the noise from the bedroom that abuts ours was horrendous. It sounded like a child being murdered peppered with pleas to be let out. Pleas that were refused by her slack mouthed mother.
This locking in business only seems happen when her partner is out.
What do the STW mums and dads make of this?
